  • Symbol opinion vote.svg Comment: Specifically, a film director needs to meet Creative person notability. That would require Dual Mania to either be directly notable (has its own article) or to have multiple high quality reviews. At most, I could find one.

There was also some advertorial word choices, but nothing non-correctable. Nosebagbear (talk) 22:27, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Joseph Strickland (born November 9, 1962) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, author, and former film festival judge. His directorial debut, Dual Mania (2018), was produced through his film production company, Vital Vision Productions, and premiered in competition at the Alternative Film Festival in Toronto, Ontario on September 17, 2018.[1] While on the 2018/2019 international film festival circuit, the psychological thriller, which revolves around the dual persona a young man possesses and attempts to conceal throughout his ongoing sessions with his therapist, would go on to rack up a whopping 13 award wins and 3 nominations, including trophies for Best Screenplay, Best Feature Film, and Best Director.[2] On February 15, 2019, both Joseph Strickland and Dual Mania were praised by the film festival judges at the Rome Prisma Independent Film Awards in Rome, Italy for the feature film being very well-directed, and for the original screenplay.[3]

In 1998, Joseph Strickland served as chair of the Features Jury at the 15th annual Chicago International Children's Film Festival, where he personally singled out several films that had important issues, including Bavel's Book, a Japanese animated film directed by Koji Yamamura, and The Island on Bird Street, directed by Soren Kragh-Jacobsen.[4]
